    The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to God: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know about the Almighty

    In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives.

Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.

  • Hoping Against Hope: Confessions of a Postmodern Pilgrim

    Hoping Against Hope: Confessions of a Postmodern Pilgrim

    John D. Caputo has a long career as one of the preeminent postmodern philosophers in America. The author of such books as Radical Hermeneutics, The Prayers and Tears of Jacques Derrida, and The Weakness of God, Caputo now reflects on his spiritual journey from a Catholic altar boy in 1950s Philadelphia to a philosopher after the death of God. Part spiritual autobiography, part homily on what he calls the ?nihilism of grace,? Hoping Against Hope calls believers and nonbelievers alike to participate in the ?praxis of the kingdom of God,? which Caputo says we must pursue ?without why.?
